Baseball and royals

Everyone knows I am a huge baseball fan.  I love my Nats ... and this blog is about royalty.

Earlier today in London at the inaugural MLB Series in London, the Duke and Duchess met with the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox.  The Duke is the Patron of the Invictus Games Foundation, which was the official charity of the two-game series.

This was the first time that a major league baseball game has been played in the United Kingdom.

The Duke of Sussex was scheduled to be at the game today - but surprise, he was accompanied by his wife, Meghan.

The Duke and Duchess visited both locker rooms where they were photographed with the teams.  The New York Yankees presented the couple with a tiny pinstripe Yankees shirt with Archie 19 on the back.  The Boston Red Sox's gift was a Red Sox onesie.

The Yankees defeated the Sox 17-13.

I wonder why there are so many people who hate her? Judging by the negative comments about her on a particular British news site, you'd think everyone felt like that. What's not to like? She's educated (with her degree in International Relations, that would be a plus in her position), she had a successful career before she married into the family and she's pretty. I think she's a great asset to the royal family.
